Bret Michaels Is Bloody Mad -- I'm No Liza Minnelli

6/11/2009 11:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

You're looking at the face of a man who took on the Tony Awards -- and barely made it out alive.

Bret Michaels

Bret Michaels
just posted these gruesome pics of his busted ass face after a prop at the award show came down and cracked him in the kisser at the end of a live performance Sunday night.

The Poison frontman also posted a scathing press release on his website, attacking the Tony's for not caring about his injuries-- because he's not Liza Minnelli!!

Here's a snippet from the actual release -- "I feel had this incident happened to Liza Minnelli, Dolly Parton or Elton John the Tonys would have at least issued a letter of concern."

In the statement, Bret claims he was dazed and bloodied during the incident, but "the full extent of his injuries remains to be seen until all x-rays are back."

Michaels reps claim someone working on the Tony's should have prevented the injury form ever happening, saying "the prop should have been immediately halted until Michaels was clear."

Sounds like someone's setting the stage for a serious lawsuit...

The man deserves an apology - a big one. Wish you well and get yourself a good lawyer because you are right - it is was Liza or any one of a number of other people -there would be a different reaction. Good Luck to you

Oh he doesn't mind. Look he'll get a great excuse to have a nose job AND see how it swelled up his top lip? Now he has his 20-something pout back. -See pucker pose. Like free injections! He is just pissed that no one pitied him.

Since when is a minor contusion on the noise and swollen lip walking away from death? Yeah they probably would have made a lot of noise if it was someone else, he is right about that at least.

Nice try, Bret. We all know that's herpes all over your mouth in the first pic! You deserved to get taken out by scenery for standing out there too long like an idiot thinking the crowds we're cheering for you. Yes, you are as dumb as you look.

Dear Brett,
Your a loser. You career has been over years ago.
You deserved to get bashed in the face after acting like a clown on stage at your age.

You will and always be - a PAUL STANLEY wannabe.

The End.
